Ok, this has been a tough month.  I fell and injured my back 4.5 weeks ago.  For the most part it has healed, but every once in a while when I do too much (sitting, standing or walking) it bothers me a bit.  I am not going to let it get me down, but moving less/slower has resulted in the scale staying pretty much the same.

The weather has been great lately, and now I can walk on most of the sidewalks in our neighbourhood without risking my life.  The mailboxes are across the street, facing north and shadowed by a house & fence.  It took two days of it being around 15 above before I could even think of getting the mail ( I was making my youngest brother go get it).

The time change was also hard, as usual.  It really seems like an outdated concept.  We should be like Saskatchewan and get ride of it.  I am sure that is why I was up again last week even though I had a good week with my usual amount of walking as well as making good food choices.  Also it was that time of the month.  Yep, looking back, that week sucked.  I should be glad I was only up 1 pound.

I expect I will be down this week.  I would love to reach some of my small goals in the next couple of weeks (85 pounds down since Nov 2005, 70 pounds down since May 2012, and 70 pounds down since Nov 2012).

My only other goal in regards to weight loss is to lose more in 2015 than I did in 2014.  This is not unreasonable.  I can do this.

And now I bring you a picture of the magnolia trees in Victoria from my dad.  He made me jealous. Sigh.
